A kayaker was slapped in the face by a seal with an octopus while on an excursion in New Zealand. Another Reason for Andy to Stay out of the Water!

Kyle Mulinder was kayaking near Kaikoura when he felt a slap in the face before realizing that it was an octopus that was tossed at him by a seal.

The attack happened near Kaikoura, which is a town on the South Island of New Zealand, and just adds to the mystique of the island nation as a truly unique place. The best videos of the internet!

Mulinder and Masuda are both content creators for the company GoPro and were trying out a new camera from the company, subsequently managing to capture the seal escapade on film.

As for his secret to viral success, Mulinder has a simple answer: "Just go get slapped in the face by an octopus, its not that hard". And now we also know that seals and octopuses don't get along.
